    I was wondering if there were any members close to me in West Virginia. I'm always looking for new quilting buddies. I'm about 20 minutes from Hinton, WV.

    Would be great to meet some members near me. Maybe we could do a Quilt retreat here. That would be so fun.

    It's in Summer County. Hinton is next not too far from Beckley. Have you heard of the Bluestone Dam? That's in Hinton. They have the Water Festival there. And then not far down the road from that at Talcott, WV, they have the John Henry Days. I'm hopeing to set up to sell my crafts there. Are you from Ohio? I've been in to the Northern panhandle.

    No, just over the Virginia state line from West Virginia. Edinburg is off I-81 half way between Harrisonburg(south) and Winchester(north). We're about 90 miles north of Lexington,VA

    I will be in Ripley West Virginia October 9-14 at the Quilting Seminar at Cedar Lakes. Great time. Good variety of classes, food is good and fellowship is wonderful and not expensive.

    Ripley is about half way between Charleston and Parkersburg.
    I'll be teaching two day classes and one two day class.

    I've been to New Martinsville before. My daughter moved there at one time. But came back. I know there are several people here from WV. I went and did a search here. Maybe they will see this and come and chat with us.
    It would be great to have a quilt retreat around here.

    I will be teaching 3 classes (4 days) in Ripley in October
    Day 1 - Tube Quilting
    Day 2 - String Quilting
    Day 3,4 - a variety of technique starting with simple piecing, adding borders, binding workshop and then a day long in quilt with walking foot.
    Sounds like simple stuff but a lot of technique mixed in all this. I like to lan projects that can be completed in the time period or at least almost finished but with info on how to finish at home if necessary.

    I can't remember the town off hand, but I've stayed in a motel in Oh when my husband was working up that way. That's been several years ago.
    We hope to come up to the Wheeling area sometime this summer and go to Cabelas. We've been to two of them on our way to Idaho to hunt.
    I'm thinking the name might of been Steubonville. But I'm not sure. We stayed at a hotel on the otherside of the town. Nice couple at that small motel.

    Hi, Betty.....I live in Marie, Monroe County....do I know you from Mt. Heritage Quilters Guild of Southern WV? If you check the users list in the menu you can type in WV and get a list of WV quilters here.....Welcome...you'll love it here. I lurked in the shadows for a long, long time just reading posts, looking at the tutes, then I finally decided just to join...haven't regretted the decision at all. I have some new great friends from across the country.

    ...sorry if I was wrong about you being a guest at our guild...something about Hummer'sGarden seemed familiar but I may be mixing you up with a Helen from Summer's county who used to come once in awhile.

    Oh...I see you'll be there in October...the MSACF is in July. BTW....I love the mini preprinted whole cloths...I've been a hand-quilter for over 30 years and just started fmq last year. The minis have been wonderful practice pieces for me.

    Yes, Kathy, it's me. Betty. If this is the right Kathy, you always waved at me while I was flagging at WillowWood. I need to get my tush over to the meetings this summer. I have plans to get a group started here also.

    I'm from Pineville but I'm only there rarely now. It's good to know folks from home are on board here though. :-D

    I've been to Pineville. I've worked near that area. And also came over that way to take the four wheeler safety course. So I know where you are.
    And yes it is so nice to meet other quilters from WV.
    I love going to the Arts and Crafts show over at Beckley. I hope to enter some quilts this year over there. Wish me luck.

    We have a home across the river from New Martinsville in Ohio. I currently live near somewhat near Steubenville, OH (40 mins away).

    I LOVE to go to Quinet's Court to eat...They have the best fish and stuffing.

    If I'm looking for quilting stuff, though, I usually head to Amish Country in Holmes County, Ohio(40 min away, too). You could trip over the LQS's there.

    PM me if you come to the Wheeling area. I've very close. My daughter works part time at Cabella's while she's in college. You probably stayed in Steubenville. Oglebay Park has some nice cabins - nice resort area!

    The Court's the BEST! And I head to Holes County at least 3 or 4 times a year. PM me when you're coming to town. Is your home in Hannibal?
